Egyptians : Lotus

This time let's see the understanding of the Egyptians on lotus, specifically on the blue lotus..

Blue Lotus or Nymphaea Caerulea also known as Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile

Blue Lotus was worshipped by the Egyptians as a visionary plant and was a symbol for the origins of life.
The Egyptians believed that the world was originally covered by water and darkness.

A Blue Lotus sprang up from the water and opened its petals to reveal a young god, a Divine Child. Light streamed from the Divine Child to banish universal darkness.

This child god was the Creator, the Sun God, the source of all life. When the Pharao known as King Tut was entombed, his body was covered in Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) flowers.

Looks like there are different understanding on Lotus from different parts of the world, however it does stick to one notion and that is DIVINITY.
That's how our life should be, as divine as the lotus....
